    Pros

    Bright people, good corporate values--especially around philanthropy and diversity. Good benefits, matching 401k, etc. Large company, lots of resources and opportunities.

    Cons

    Account Scandal was perpetuated by a small % of employees, but all employees and the company's reputation has suffered. Very slow pay increases once you start the company. Large company, moves slowly, highly regulated, uber cautious.

    Advice to Management

    Value your team members, work on stronger retention strategies, especially in this competitive market.

    I have been working at Wells Fargo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Full Benefits, free bank account to employees but I get better treatment at other banks than the one I work for. That's Shady WF for you

    Cons

    Dead end job no room for advancement unless you know a manager in another dept.
    Their hiring practices as a whole company are shady they interview people just to make it look good but its always someone they know already is going to be hired. Even if you are a WF employee already they dangle the carrot and interview you once or twice but already know ahead of time you who they re giving the job to,

    Advice to Management

    Stop wasting peoples time if you already know you are hiring
